“The Duncanville First Baptist Church campus consists of 7 buildings with a total of 100,000 feet of floor space. The goal was to deliver high quality pictures with stereo sound to all buildings and their classrooms.
After evaluating several methods to accomplish this, S-Video was selected as the format for our delivery system. After several meetings discussing coaxial cable, fiber optics, rf transmission and other methods to connect all the buildings, the cost seemed prohibitive for the project.
We then went to the Internet to see if anyone had equipment to transmit S-Video over cat5 cable. We found NTI had such a system that would not only transmit S-Video, but would also do high quality sound over just one cat5 cable and was very cost effective.
The NTI S-Video Splitter/Extender via CAT5 seemed perfect for the DFBC project. We ordered one system and setup a test with side-by-side monitors, one at the source and one through the Extender with 500 feet of cat5 cable. To the untrained eye there was no difference in the two pictures.”
